My understanding is that if you come to a complete stop, you are at that point potentially culpable unless the person/persons you stopped for begin being threatening. If they're simply standing there peacefully you are expected to wait for an officer to remove them, else you could be charged with assault with a deadly weapon (if nobody dies), or vehicular manslaughter.
